THE ACTRESSES

Grainne Delaney

Character: Lays of Corynth

SOME BIOGRAPHY DATA:

After achieving her acclaimed Masters Degree in Psychology & Theatre Grainne followed her dream of travelling and performing through out Europe with several troupes. Her granny called her a gypsy-tramp.

When she started a family she thought her career in Theatre was over, so she re-trained to be a responsible physiotherapist. The call of the stage however, just wouldn’t let her go.

She found a way to create with Theatre by teaching performance skills to high-school students; the Hero’s Journey to animation programmers; helping dancers to find their voice; or supporting development programs in business with scenario training and role-play.

After re-training (again!) to be an Energy Coach at iPEC she found her niche coaching and facilitating Storytelling Workshops for IT and Finance Professionals.

On-line or on-stage, Grainne brings passion and purpose together, to inspire others to do the same.
